Funeral services were held at Cleveland Monday. April *, 1965 Be Drilled For Burt Use The Burt Town Council Wednesday night approved digging a new municipal water well costing in excess of $10,000. Work is expected to begin on the new well soon after approval of the site is given by the State Department of Health, Ap- roval is expected within two or three days, according to Town Clerk G. H. McMullen. The work, which will be done by Thorpe Well Co. of Des Moines will be completed within 30days. Last November, an Inspection of the water supply by a state agency revealed it was indequate for fire protection. The town negotiated for a well once used by the Chicago and North-Western Railway here. However, when the well was opened, it was discovered, it was almost full of cinders. The casing also had holes, authorities said. The town now draws water from two wells near the business district. The site for the new well is in the same area. The cost of the well will be paid from monies which already have been collected for emergency use, said McMullen. Long Distance Phone Rates To Drop Again Another reduction in rates for long distance telephone calls within Iowa was filed today with the Iowa State Commerce Commission by Northwestern Bell Telephone Company. The reduction, which was requested by the Commission, is patterned after the reductions which became effective Feb. 1 on interstate calls. As filed, the rates will take effect May 1. According to T. S. Nurnberger, Northwestern Bell vice- president and general manager, the new rates will save Iowa telephone users more than $300,000 a year. With last September's reduction in rates for long distance calls within the state, lowans will be saving over $1,430,000 annually on in-state long distance calls. The reduction in long distance rates will range from 5 cents to 30 cents on a station call of 47 miles or more, Nurnbergersaid. Under the new night rates the lowest charges for a station call will apply each night from 8p.m. to 4:30 a.m. and anytime Sunday. During these periods, a three minute station call to anywhere in Iowa will cost 60$ or less. Evening rates will apply on station calls from 6 to 8 p.m. weekdays and all day Saturday up to 8 p.m. when new night rates go into effect.
